"..the right thing to do."
Colleen & Murdock Smith
But for a family in Sydney, their grief at the loss of their daughter has been assuaged to some degree by the knowledge that her death is helping others.
16-year-old Jillian Whelan died earlier this week following a car accident early Monday near Dalem Lake.
In hospital in Halifax, her family members made the decision to donate her organs for transplant.
The CBC's Holly Conners spoke with them about that decision today.
She met Jillian's mother and father, Colleen and Murdock Smith, and her aunt Kathleen Whelan, in the Smith's backyard.
